As part of the downtown campus IDEA Commons initiative, the Brick City Gallery and Carolla Arts Exhibition Center are committed to serving their communities through exploring what’s next in visual and material culture. Serving as extensions of our Art and Design Department classrooms, both galleries exhibit fine art and design that engages and enriches the academic and cultural experience through:
- Expanding awareness of and accessibility to the arts and promote an understanding of the importance of art and design in culture.
- Offering exhibitions, interpretation, and associated programming exploring trends in contemporary art, the evolving significance of art and design in relation to culture and society, and the department’s place in that story.
- Provide professional exhibition space for undergraduate and graduate Art and Design Department students to exhibit work and gain professional experience with contemporary art and design practices throughout their academic career.
